Curry is my absolute favourite recipe in the winter months! I always change up the ingredients in there to make it taste a little different each time, but I wanted to show you what a standard curry looks like for me. It’s the most warming and nourishing meal to have in the colder seasons because our body genuinely craves warmer foods at this time. I always recommend choosing cooked foods in the winter versus raw foods because our digestive systems have an easier time processing these dishes when the external temperature is cooler. Here’s the recipe and I hope you enjoy! Standard ingredients: 1 cup soaked lentils 1 tbsp coconut oil 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 red or white onion, chopped 1 can Cha’s Organics coconut cream 1 cup cilantro, chopped 1/2 cup parsley, chopped 1/2 tsp fresh ginger 2-3 tbsp red Thai paste These are the ingredients you can play with: Vegetables (as many as you’d like):broccoli, cauliflower, celery, kale, spinach, carrots, zucchini, cabbage, peppers. Spices (measurements are up to your tolerance!): ginger, cumin, turmeric, cayenne, pepper, garam masala, fenugreek- I do about 1/2-1 tbsp of each). METHOD: 1.Soak lentils. Sauté garlic and onions with oil for a few minutes. 2.Add in heartier vegetables, then add in the coconut cream and red Thai paste. 3.Bring to a boil, reduce to low and add in the other vegetables. Add all spices in. 3.Add soaked lentils and simmer for 20 minutes. I make this recipe about twice a week and always change up the protein, veg and spices so that I don’t get bored. Other protein sources you can add: chickpeas, black beans, chicken, beef.
